AutoCAD 2006 is huge; even AutoCAD 2006 LT is pretty darned sizable. You could buy an equally gigantic book. But what if you only need to review and tweak existing drawings? Or what if you’ve used AutoCAD and all you need is a quick update or refresher? Legendary AutoCAD maven George Omura has written the perfect book for you.
There’s nothing fancy here: just the basics, explained simply. Omura walks through navigating the current AutoCAD (and LT) interface; basic 2D and 3D drawing and editing; the Modify toolbar; dimensions; text; and the Design Center. He offers a primer on organizing your drawings with layers, blocks, groups, and external references.
Last but not least, he demystifies layout and printing. These features’ complexity can trip you up, just when you’re in the biggest rush to deliver. But not if you have this book. Bill Camarda, from the June 2005 Read Only
